Anyone Watch Rise, When Will We Get Celtics Content Like This?

 


   Disclaimer I'm a huge Celtics fan, as I believe you all know from my writing. With that said I remember watching the 2013 Draft at dinner near the BBHOF with my wife and hoping to hear the that the Celtics were going to take Giannis. Well it didn't happen and I can say I was truly disappointed. That also didn't mean I wasn't going to follow his career. 

   I'm not a movie critic, but I did watch Rise this weekend. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. His parents did their everything to find the best life for their family. Both Giannis and Thanasis found basketball in Greece where they were born and it's truly amazing that at one point they were sharing shoes while playing for their youth team. Unlike most NBA stars who at a certain point are seen and dubbed the next great player and have a yellow brick road to glory from an early age, that wasn't the case for Giannis. His brother showed more promise at first. 

   Seeing the scene where he was sleeping in the gym shows the dedication and love he has for basketball. What is more amazing is the dedication he and his family have for one another. A family driven by faith and hard work are truly inspiring. For me personally watching him on draft night live and in the movie his love for God is evident. It hit me where it counts. For any basketball fan give yourself the opportunity to feel good and enjoy how the love of basketball can drive people to greatness. 

   Now on to what we deserve as Celtics fans, I was a huge fan of the Bulls Last Dance, I also have no interest for anything Lakers that's being done. With that said can we get some in-depth specials on the greatest franchise of all time? There is so much history with the Celtics it could fill the library of any streaming service out there. Get it done!

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN.

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed.

Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
